It was totally not value for money. Room was extremely small. Bad partition, you can constantly hear the noise from the corridor or doors banged at next door/around you. Given similar price range, the hotel opposite this is far way better.

For the budget price, it's worth the money (paid RM272 per night for 2 rooms). Comes with healthy breakfast. Friendly, helpful staff. Good location - walking distance, about 1.6 km to the JBC mall and the night bazaar (Rusty Bazaar).

Limited parking. The musty smell in the rooms and along corridors can be repulsive, but you get used to it.

Strategically located at the heart of JB. MUST use GPS to locate hotel tho. Basic room, small but clean. All facilities in working order. Breakfast provided for online reservation. Limited choices (maybe this due to Ramadan month) but enough to fill the stomach for half day. For the not so choosy.

I called and spoke to someone at the hotel by the name EZAD i made a reservation with him over the phone and confirm at the rate of 108RM I thought everything was ok... i even called again and spoke to a lady and inform that i will be late in a bit and that my booking is confirm with queen bed and she said ok... after dinner i go straight to the hotel to check.in only to found out that they did not book my room and they are asking much higher price than what i first confirm.. they are charging me almost RM50 more for our room... staff are not so helpful and ask us to book online to get the rate that was offered to me on the phone...Im so upset that time and the staff are not helpful at all.. instead of transferring to other hotel since its almost midnight we just decided to take the room as my husband and I are so tired from work as it is supposed to be our weekend getaway,SHAM assisted us with the booking (its like a not trained hotelier) before leaving the front desk we confirm the room that has queen bed then when we came to our room we are surprise to have two single beds...we called the front desk and ask for a queen bed then we waited again then transfer to the room that has queen bed. so tired that even the room smells we just rest and sleep...breakfast is so lousy... staff has no manners, scene:( from our room we went down to have breakfast then at the ground floor when elevators open we are about to go out, the staff enters the elevator the same time as we are going out instead of waiting for us to go out first before entering the lift...)

If not for Google map, I would never find this hotel. Open-air car park for hotel guests is free. Check-in is supposed to be at 2.00 pm but when I reach at 4.45, my room is still not ready. However, the receptionist is kind enough to upgrade my room from a 2-bed room to a 3-bed room. The room is not that big but for the price I paid, I do not expect it to be huge either. There are ni wardrobe in the room and the toilet is quite small but the room is clean and the bed is comfortable. That is good enough for me. Breakfast is basic and there isn't enough room for the many people in this hotel during school holiday.

I have been stayed 2 times at Amansari Express. The room are simple but acceptable and clean .There is no brushteeth provided. Not easy to find the location of the hotel at first time , it's unsafe to walk the alley when at night time. Breakfast are average, but the restaurant just located at the lobby, rather small place and when we go down for breakfast , it was so crowded . Overall , budget hotel budget stayed.

We book the room online and we did called to follow up. But when we reach here they did not have our name on the list. Luckily the staff were a bit helpful and didnt mind 4 of us in a room.
The rooms are small but we did have a comfortable stay.
Overall quite ok, but their are a lot more hotels nearer to the shopping mall that are convenient.

Stayed here while on a school field trip.Fairly nice and clean rooms. The only downside was the thin walls. Great for field trips and large groups! Also close proximity to the causeway makes it ideal for travellers heading to singapore.

Most of the strengths and weaknesses of this property have already been expounded upon in previous reviews.

AIRCON, Wi-Fi work as advertised. NO hot water at the sink and iffy in the shower.

The location is good if you enjoy walking. "Town" is 15-20 min on foot. It isn't an easy find for a taxi, especially at night.

The only meal available is breakfast. I would rate it as passable.

The greatest strength of this property is its Operations Officer. She was both pleasant and efficient. I was provided a refrigerator, when I requested one and was NOT charged a supplementary amount.

My trip was an exploratory one and I will not likely require this property again
